In preparation for the delivery of your spa, be sure to
have your home area ready. When we arrive, the tub will be on a
spa dolly which makes maneuvering the spa easy. It gives us the
ability to spin the spa on its side when needed in tight areas.
Please do the following before we arrive, or contact me if you would
like my guys to assist you in making an opening large
enough for the spa:
First make sure that there is a clear pathway
that will be free of obstacles (such as overhanging tree limbs, awnings,
protruding gas meters, water meters, and any A/C units), which could
apprehend the moving in process. It may also be necessary to
momentarily remove a gate, part of a fence, or other objects or
structures so that the spa can be dollied into the desired location. If the
path that you will have laid out for the delivery consists of any
turns of 90 degrees or more, check and make sure that the measurement
of the spa will fit within the space you have allowed. If there are
tight areas, they need to be at least 39 ½ wide for the
bigger tubs and 31 ½ wide for the smaller tubs. Also, make sure the
there is enough height area for the tub. To do this, add an extra inch more than
the tub on each side so that we can slide the tub through.
1) Avoid choosing a site where excessive water may come in contact
with the spa.
(i.e., sprinklers, roof without a gutter system, etc.)
2) Prevent dirt, sand, and other foliage from being tracked into your
spa by utilizing
concrete, concrete pavers, etc.
3) Consider privacy. If you are placing your tub in a surrounding of
trees for shade
in the summer, be aware that you will lose some of that privacy in the
winter when there are no leaves on the trees.
4) Consider the winter
winds, During the winter, the winds blow from the north and the west.
By strategically placing your spa and covermate (i.e.. Position the
spa on the south side of your house and your covermate on the west
side of the spa), you can enjoy being in the spa without the need of a
In order to have the proper setup for your spa, you need to have a
good, solid foundation
that will be supported by a flat, stable, consistent subsurface. The
area beneath the spa to
be needs able to support the weight of the spa itself, its water, and
its occupants. (A spa can be as much as 6,000lbs, plus the weight of the
occupants.) An inadequate foundation may settle or shift after the spa has
been set into place, causing
stress to the spas shell.
Concrete foundations should be a minimum of 4 thick and should be
referenced with either
rebar or mesh.
-Prepare a Good Foundation
- Place the spa on an elevated foundation so that the water
drains away from it.
- If you install indoors, pay close attention to the
flooring. Remember, a spa filled with water can cause moisture
- A spa filled with water is heavy. If you are installing on
an elevated structure, it is recommended that consult a contractor
or structural engineer.
- Your surface must not have more than 1 slope.
-Electrical Safety Requirements
When installing a spa, they must be in accordance with national and
local wiring rules. It is
highly advisable that a licensed Electrician performs the electrical
suggested certified electrician on home page. All wire should
be buried or in conduit to the point where the wire enters the spa.
-Overhead Power Lines
Required by the national and local wiring rules that apply to your
area, you will need to
install your spa at the required minimum horizontal and vertical
distances from all power lines.
